In the Maker Shed: 4WD Robotics Platform

4WD Robotics Platform

So you want to get mobile with your Arduino or other micro controller and don’t know where to start? The Maker Shed has you covered with the 4WD Arduino Compatible Mobile Platform. This kit features 4 geared motors, wheels, and a high-strength aluminum alloy body. Just add an Arduino, power supply, and motor shield. Your project will soon traverse grass, gravel, sand, or sloped surface with ease. Also available in 2WD.

  1. I bought one of these, and a motor shield, at Maker Faire. It seems just what I need for a project I’ve been thinking of.

    I bought, from a thrift shop, a swell Locutus of Borg head. Jean Luque Picard with cyborg gear. It is a “cup topper,” given away as a fast food promo item.

    If things work out, the head will ride atop the cart, shooting a laser beam and uttering Borg threats.

The Maker Shed is brought to you by Maker Media, the makers of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Faire, and much more.

Launched originally as a source for back issues of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Shed expanded rapidly to meet the demand for 'projects in a box,' otherwise known as kits. Now we have a little bit of everything for makers, crafters, and budding scientists, from Arduinos to sock monkeys to chemistry sets .
